Do you have a deeper hunger?

"Blessed and fortunate and happy and spiritually prosperous (in that state in which the born-again child of God enjoys His favor and salvation) are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God), for they shall be completely satisfied!" Matthew 5:6 Amplified Bible

Do you want more of God?

Do you have that joy that bubbles over?

Do you care what others think about you?

Do you know what thinks about you?

Do you long for happiness?

Do you long to have more of God in your daily life?

Do you still have a desire to sin?

Do you struggle between sin and righteousness?

Are you satisfied with the way things are going in your life?

Righteousness is a big word for just doing what is right in God!

God wants us to be happy.

When we are obedient we experience His blessings and His joy.

You don't have to wait to get to heaven to experience happiness, you can have it here while you are on this earth.

One of the biggest reasons that there is so much trouble in the world today is that we are not right with God!

Everything that is offered is for our happiness, but is it really?

Do material things make you happy?

for how long?

We may get a season of happiness out of what that material thing has brought, but then there is a desire for more.

Yes?

God is the only way to true happiness!

"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me." John 14:6

Each one of us has our off days.

As humans we are not immune to bad days, but we do have the power that can change our steps towards accomplishment.

It does not matter what is happening in your life today, God's Word declares that there is goodness and mercy in the midst of what we are going through.

No matter what we are going through God should be the center.

We are to praise Him no matter what!

"This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalm 118:24

We are not to let the material things of this world steal our hunger and our joy from God.

Material things will pass away, but our God will forever be here!

Do you want the world's happiness or God's happiness that is eternal?

To have a desire for righteousness is to have a desire to be right with God.

To be right with God we must want to be sin free.

It is sin that comes between us and our heavenly Father.

Who would want to be bound up with sin?

Do you enjoy not doing right?

If you truly have a desire for more of God than you will set that besetting sin aside and come for that closer walk with the Almighty!

It is a desire to nothing less than your best through Him in your daily life!

It is having that deep longing in your heart for more of God, that only He can fill.

It is having that right relationship with Him.

It is living that acceptable life for Him, and letting Him work through you!

"But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33

"He that believeth on Me, as the scriptures hath said, out of His belly shall flow rivers of living water." John 7:38
